Hillary Clinton's approval ratings worst since 2008: Poll
A new poll shows former US secretary of state Hillary Clinton's approval ratings hitting their lowest point in six years.
The poll, conducted by Fox News, said that 49 percent of Americans view Clinton favorably, while 45 percent see her unfavorably.
This is the first time the former secretary of state’s approval rating has dropped below 50 percent in a Fox survey since April 2008.
The drop in Clinton's approval ratings is surprising for many people as she is widely considered to be the Democratic favorite for the 2016 presidential election.
She has not officially announced her bid for the presidential post yet.
When asked about seeking the Democratic nomination for president in 2016, Clinton did not reject the idea last month.
"I am thinking about it," she said. "I'm not going to make a decision for awhile, because I'm actually enjoying my life."
Some other polls have also shown Clinton's ratings steadily falling since she left her post of the secretary of state on February 1, 2013.
The Fox poll also indicated that Americans are now evenly split -- 45 percent to 45 percent – on Democratic Party and Republican Party.
In october last year, the same poll found that just 30 percent of Americans viewed Republican Party favorably, compared to 63 percent who viewed the GOP unfavorably.
